Product Description


Cole's close readings of violence in the work of some of the major modernists are superb. (Lauren Arrington, The Times Literary Supplement)

is also striking in terms of what it leaves out: a full-scale exploration of the Great War, arguably the defining event in the concatenation of modernism and violence.

Exceptional 29 April 2013
By Robert J. Burgoyne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At the The Violet Hour is a breakthrough work, a study of violence in literature of the modernist period. The quality of the writing and the reach of the argument make this a fundamentally important book.
